Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Best "Dead" show in 20 years!!

I thought this show would be good because I'm a big fan of everyone involved but I had no idea what I was getting into when I put this one on to play.
Incredibly exectued from start to finish, not only is the playing really good (and hot!) but each song has plenty of surprises. C.f. the spacey jam in Althea between the bridge and the last verse. New textures, sounds and riffs abound! A fresh take on the dead indeed.

I hesitate to pick out highlights because everything is so good but a few did stand out. Especially Althea, Deal, the transition from T-Jed to Shakedown and the whole second set. Estimated>Eyes and TOO in particular.

I dare you to listen to this and not enjoy it. Do it now!
